By connecting Crisp’s GeoJSON outbound connector, Crisp users will be able to sync their distributor and retailer location data to Google Maps (or other mapping apps) to create a store locator for use on their consumer websites. Crisp’s GeoJSON connector will automatically populate and maintain your map of store locations**, ensuring your customers are accurately finding your products.
To get started in automating a store locator for your company:
- Log into your Crisp account.
- Click on the grid menu icon and select "Connectors" from the drop down menu.
- Click the "Add connector" button that appears at the top of the screen.
- Select "GeoJSON" underneath "Destination connectors."
- Name your connector (we recommend something unique) and then select the checkboxes next to each source you wish for Crisp to export for your store locations.
- Next, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save" button.
- You should then see your newly-enabled tile with your other connectors. Click to re-open.
- In the page that loads, you'll see a URL that directs to the geo location information. Click the “Copy to clipboard” link.
With that URL, you'll have to flexibility to connect your geo location data into a platform such as Google Maps. Doing so takes just a few steps and requires a Google Cloud account.
With your Google Cloud account, you can begin using the Google Maps Platform APIs and SDKs. You will want to create a Google Maps API Key with the following APIs enabled:
Distance Matrix API.
Street View Static API
